FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) - The UK Cheerleading Team is heading to PyeongChang -- trading in their blue and white for red, white and blue.
The Wildcats cheerleaders have been chosen to represent Team USA at the Winter Olympics.
They won't compete for a medal -- but the team will perform at the closing ceremony, awards ceremonies, street parades and other Olympic venues. They will take part in a friendly competition with cheerleading teams from other countries.
The University of Kentucky Cheerleading Team is a cheerleading dynasty - National Champions 23 times.
"We're very excited about the opportunity...show off our skills," UK Cheerleading Coach Jomo Thompson said.
The Cats will arrive in South Korea on February 18th -- they'll fly home on the 28th.
The team announced they were chosen to travel to South Korea in late November before the National Championship competition, which was in January.
